Abstract

While two-dimensional (2-D) echocardiography has had a tremendous impact on the diagnosis and management of patients with cardiac disease, three-dimensional (3-D) echocardiography provides visualization of structures in their spatial orientation that is not feasible with 2-0 imaging. This article reviews clinical applications of past and current 3-0 technologies, and highlights several issues - including method of data acquisition, off-line review/data rendering, and potential clinical applications - needed to integrate 3-D echocardiography into day-to-day clinical practice.1-12
